    Am I forgetting anything?

    Advertisements
    Well, it's official. Joe is getting out of the Navy. He starts terminal leave on October 16th and his EAOS date is November 18th. I wasn't told about this until a couple of days before he came home. Prior to that he was telling me that he was talking to his detailer and working on getting San Diego orders. Yeah. I got a month and a half's notice that we're going to be homeless, penniless, and without insurance of any kind. Fun, huh?

    So, now I'm trying to make sure I get every last use out of our Tricare/United Concordia while I can. I've scheduled both of the girls well child appointments, we'll get their shots done then too, all 3 of us have dentist appointments, I have a "woman checkup" and an optometry appointment. Am I forgetting anything?

    MAKE SURE THAT HE GETS COBRA INSURANCE! They have to offer it to him, and I am sure he can add you guys as well. It does, cost money to have it, but it is so much better than not having it. DB had to go to the hospital in an ambulance a few weeks after he got out of the navy, and without COBRA I don't know what he would have done to pay that HUGE bill!

    Depending on where you go to live, most states have free medical for children. You have to met the income requirements .

    I know in San Diego they have medical and healthy family's.

    OMG yes the cobra is so costly..we looked into it when Adam got out and we about DIED!!!! I don't know how they expect anyone to aford to pay that. Where are you guys going to move to? Do he have a job lined up yet?

    Also make sure to get a "copy" of the kids medical records aswell as your own to take with you.

    Cobra will cost us about $667 a month. With him having no job lined up we can't afford it.

    Also make sure to get a "copy" of the kids medical records as well as your own to take with you.
    It's on my to do list. Thanks for the reminder!

    I have a vision (optometry) appointment already. I tried making one for Mara too but children under 6 have to have a referral from pediatrics. I'll probably ask for that at her well child appointment. None of us really need hearing appointments. The kids have selective hearing but I don't think there's anything Tricare or a doctor can do for that.
